'It is impossible to read this book without wanting to scuttle off into the kitchen.' Nigella Lawson Foreword by Tim Spector The benefits of sourdough are well known - the slow fermentation process creates a healthier and lighter dough that is easier to digest - but until now they have been mainly linked to bread. If it rises, however, it can be made with sourdough, and in this ground-breaking new book, Vanessa Kimbell focuses on sweet sourdough bakes that not only nourish the gut but also improve your mood. Using a variety of flours, including chestnut, spelt and einkorn, as well as blends you can make up yourself, the classic recipes and new ideas for flavour combinations cover everything from cakes, tarts and biscuits, to doughnuts, brioche and pretzels, and rely on natural sweetness wherever possible. Recipes include Morello Cherry Shortbread, Chocolate, Tangerine & Pistachio Cakes, Carrot & Walnut Cake, Doughnuts and Mille-feuille as well as vinegars, compotes, cultured creams, butters and ghee. There is even Chocolate, Almond & Hazelnut Spread and Sourdough Vanilla Ice Cream. Vanessa also explains how sourdough helps to maintain the health and diversity of your gut microbiome. From understanding the benefits of having diversity in your diet to the amazing work of enzymes, this book is about understanding the connection between our food, gut microbiome and the potential impact on our mental health. New studies are unveiling links between the microorganisms in our gut and our mood and behaviour, and Vanessa is at the forefront of this research. 'Britain's queen of sourdough.' - Telegraph 'Vanessa Kimbell wants to change the bread we eat, one loaf at a time. She's the real deal: a total inspiration.' - Diana Henry 'Just five years ago if someone said to you that they were writing a book about sourdough bread and mental health you would have thought they needed psychiatric help. Today nobody is laughing as the latest science tells us that microbes are the key link between food and the health of our mind and bodies.' - Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth

You made it through the elimination period of the autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet, but now what? The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook shows you how to successfully implement and track the reintroduction of inflammatory foods through all four stages with appropriate recipes and food lists. The AIP diet is quickly gaining ground as the top health-supportive diet for autoimmune conditions. To follow this elimination diet, inflammatory foods are removed for 30-90 days. After the elimination period, the foods are then reintroduced in four stages to see if they can be tolerated. While eliminating foods can be daunting, the reintroduction phase of the diet is the most anxiety-provoking and failure-prone part of the process for AIP followers. Each stage of the reintroduction must be done methodically and carefully so that an autoimmune flare is not triggered. AIP Certified Coach Kate Jay of the popular blog Healing Family Eats eases the challenge of reintroduction by guiding you step by step through every stage. One hundred tantalizing recipes, divided by stage, add pleasure to the process. Enjoy: Spice-Spatchcocked Chicken with Lime Gravy (Stage 1) Pear, Raspberry, and Cardamom Galette (Stage 1) Roasted Pomegranate Carrots on Whipped Tahini (Stage 2) Strawberry Vanilla Chia Seed Parfait (Stage 2) Lentil Ragu on Rutabaga Noodles (Stage 3) Blackberry Streusel Muffins (Stage 3) Vietnamese Pork with Noodles and Roasted Peanuts (Stage 4) Rice Pudding with Blood Orange and Saffron (Stage 4) Along with the recipes and food lists, she offers best practices and troubleshooting advice, including how to handle an unsuccessful food reintroduction and when the next stage can be introduced. Let The Autoimmune Protocol Reintroduction Cookbook be your reassuring companion as you take the next step in your AIP journey.
